Gladstone Public Buildings
Between 1883 and 1887, the Colonial Architect's Office prepared drawings of Queensland public buildings built since separation from New South Wales in 1859. Each drawing is in ink and coloured with watercolour and depicts the buildings in plan and elevation. The drawings are distinct from others prepared during the design and construction of the buildings, and were known at the time as Show Plans.

Keeping records together
The QSA Government Recordkeeping team have been
looking at how we do things and how we can make it easier for public
authorities to manage their public records. We’re working with our clients to
make sure we are ‘Keeping records together’.
Award for QSA
Some great news for Queensland State Archives. Our ‘Toolkit for Managing Public Records When Decommissioning ICT Systems’ has won an Australian Society of Archivists' publications award!
The Toolkit took out Category 1A for making the greatest contribution to the archives profession in Australia written by or on behalf of a corporate body. The award was collected by our Director of Digital Archives and Government Recordkeeping, Adrian Cunningham, pictured here collecting the award in Christchurch, NZ.
Congrats to all involved!
